Hadrian Opera: "World Premiere of Hadrian, A New Canadian Opera" | Talks at Google

On October 13, 2018, the Canadian Opera Company marked the opening night of the highly anticipated world premiere of Hadrian by composer Rufus Wainwright and librettist Daniel MacIvor. The opera recounts the epic love story of Roman Emperor Hadrian and his young lover, Antinous. Erased by history, their story is reclaimed for the 21st century by its creators in a star-studded production from renowned Canadian director Peter Hinton. The creative team and cast behind Hadrian visited Google for a panel discussion on the eve of their world premiere. This lively panel discussion covers many topics: opera for beginners, including learning about the opera landscape in Canada; the definition of a "Dramaturg"; and why an opera centered around a same-sex love story in the context of a foregone empire means something now, even millennia later. This is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look into the first world premiere of a Canadian Opera Company-commissioned opera since 1999, and the first COC-commissioned opera to premiere on the stage of the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Panelists: Composer: Rufus Wainwright Librettist: Daniel MacIvor Director: Peter Hinton Dramaturg: Cori Ellison Opera Singer: Isaiah Bell Moderated by Bob Cornwall.

Ndaba Mandela: "Going to the Mountain: Life Lessons from My Grandfather, [..,]" | Talks at Google

The first-ever book to tell Nelson Mandela's life through the eyes of a child who was raised by him, chronicling Ndaba Mandela's life living with, and learning from, one of the greatest leaders and humanitarians the world has ever known. In a story that has never been told, Going to the Mountain tells the tale of how Nelson Mandela steered his grandson Ndaba from his reckless youth (shirking school, fighting in gangs) to his maturation into a fully realized and principled adulthood--all as an often-single parent in his years after political imprisonment and through his landmark presidency of South Africa. On a scale both intimate and epic, the book will detail the gripping arc of Ndaba's own extraordinary journey, which mirrors that of South Africa's, from the segregated Soweto ghettos into which he was born, to the presidential mansion in which he grew up, and the challenged times in which he lives now.
